Australian Celebrity Apprentice Max Markson’s “Drug Addiction” Attack on Didler Cohen?

Question by Jarrod K: Australian Celebrity Apprentice Max Markson’s “drug addiction” attack on Didler Cohen?
I think it’s time to have a little fun here and ask you your thoughts if any of you Australians follow the show or heard the story after a measly few minutes being reported in media.

Basically what happened was Max Markson attacked Didler Cohen for not doing his job, but out of nowhere, he says he’s a “cocaine addict”. It’s not that it wasn’t true, but that it was uncalled for and inappropriate. And yet…they still aired the scene when he said it. It is one of the most awkward moments I have seen on the show, and so bizarre. Mad Max as they call them revealed how his frustration can lead him to being out of control on the show, and this showed it even more.

I Don’t Know What to Make of This,on a Cycle That Starts Again About Every 3 Months,?

Question by soft honesty: I don’t know what to make of this,on a cycle that starts again about every 3 months,?
I start feeling on top of the world-full of energy, and hope, and confidence, and having goodwill twoards everyone, and having intense deep feelings of love and understanding,-and seemingly overnight, I become the exact opposite-no emotion, no energy, no reason, and very intense anger, not the physical kind, I feel I want to ruin everyone’s life, and make them suffer, as I do. After about a month or two this letts up, and I become a “saint again” This has been happening for years now, and I’ve been on almost every type of meds there are, yet they don’t seem to affect it at all.-I have borderline personality disorder, but I’m not sure if this is the cause of it.What may be causing it, and what do I do about it?
P.S>I know the DBT skills training manual backwards and forwards, sometimes it helps with managing symptoms, but the problem itself remains uaffected.
